Walking back from Whole Foods at Columbus Circle, I snap a photo through the canopy at the Trump Hotel and think to myself: "You've gotta look up in this town!" Hard to do when you are hell bent on getting someplace, tourists have it easier, not being in a rush. But how often do I see them bent over, looking into their maps? All the time. Faces stuck at street level, they're missing the very thing they've come to see.
The second photo is of 15 Central Park West, the building right next to Trumps' glass and brass wonder. It's two recently built towers- one which looms over the other - look out over the Park in a style reminiscent of an older era. The last photo is of its Deco gone Baroque entryway. Even here, you have to look up or you miss the building's details.
